The Holy Trinity with the Devil as a Footstool
This miniature begins Psalm 109, marking one of the eight major liturgical divisions of the Psalms. The strange iconography of the miniature comes directly from the first verse of the Psalm: "The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand until I make thy enemies thy footstool."
The style of illumination in this manuscript is typical of what is known as the "Golden Age" of Flemish illumination, a period that extended from ca. 1470 to about ca. 1560.
Two identifiable artists worked on this manuscript: the Psalm illustrations are by a follower of Masters of the Golden Fleece, and the Canticle illustrations are by the Master of Edward IV.
